Daily Verse: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2 ESV)
METAMORPHOO (3339): “As a verb, means “to change into another form” (meta, implying change and morphe, “form,” is used in the passive voice.) of believers, Rom 12:2, the obligation being to undergo a complete change which, under the power of God, will find expression in character ad conduct; morphe lays stress on the outward, the present continuous tenses indicate a process.”[I]
Allowing God to transform you means you will change your actions. Instead of following fleshly desires, you will pursue Godly ones. Learning and applying Biblical principles will change what you do.
Placing your faith in Jesus, then imitating what He did will cause you to act differently. With over 2,000 verses about managing money, you will learn how to live within your means. Applying God’s relational guidelines will create life-giving relationships. The Bible has instructions on every aspect of life. When you follow them, you will have a transformed life.
Submitting your life to Jesus allows God to transform your life, leaving behind the sins of the past; you get another chance. Facing a tempting situation, you can choose to follow God’s commands instead of your human desires.
When someone angers me, controlling the emotion can take everything I have. Praying “Grace, not anger” brings God into the situation and allows Him to transform me. As I seek Jesus, my anger begins to disappear, allowing me to reason. But only by seeking God can I experience His transformation, which leads to changed actions.
Pursue God today with all your heart. Allow Him to transform your mind and soul. Let the world see the difference following Jesus makes as you bring your actions in line with God’s will. Loving God and others will lead you to live life to the fullest one day at a time.
